Atmospheric Electric Field Data Analyst Please quote ref no: BAS 75/11 Closing date for applications: 31 Oct 2011 The British Antarctic Survey (BAS), part of the Natural Environment Research Council, aims to undertake a world-class programme of scientific research, and to sustain for the UK an active and influential regional presence and a leadership role in Antarctic affairs. This project aims to identify if solar variability can influence weather and climate through processes other than direct radiation, and specifically through electric potential variations in the Earth's ionosphere driven by solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere interactions. Your main activity will be to apply statistical data analysis techniques to the analysis of ionospheric electric field data from the SuperDARN high-frequency radar network, as well as meteorological data from the polar regions. This will include developing software packages to identify correlations and the investigation of causal mechanisms. You will also engage in publishing scientific papers and presenting results at international meetings. With a PhD in physics or mathematics or equivalent postgraduate experience, you will have an interest in space and atmospheric science and experience of software development in a compiled language, preferably for the analysis of experimental data. Effective in working on your own initiative and in collaboration with others, you will also be able to manage resources to meet agreed objectives and deadlines. Experience of working in ionospheric or atmospheric science, of statistical analysis of large data sets, or of analysis of SuperDARN high-frequency radar data would be an advantage. Qualifications: PhD in physics or mathematics, or equivalent post-graduate experience in these subjects. Duration: 3 year fixed term appointment Salary: Salary will be in the range of £26,180 to £29,410 per annum. We offer a generous benefits package including a defined salary pension scheme, free car parking, flexible working hours and 30 days annual leave. On-line application forms and further information are available on our website at www.antarctica.ac.uk/employment These are also available from the Human Resources Section, British Antarctic Survey, High Cross, Madingley Road, Cambridge, CB3 0ET.
